Cat and Dog Endoscopy in Canton, GA
Many of us may be familiar with endoscopy from our own experiences, either from an upper GI to evaluate the esophagus, stomach, and small bowel, or through colonoscopy. At Riverstone Animal Hospital, we provide this same service for your pets to help us diagnose and treat many disorders of the GI tract, and potentially help them avoid surgery in the process.
What to Expect with Your Pet’s Endoscopic Procedure
Compared to standard surgery, endoscopy is extremely gentle on our patients and leaves them with no sutures, no discomfort, and no activity restrictions following anesthesia. Endoscopic procedures can generally be performed under a light “twilight” anesthesia, instead of the deeper anesthesia that is required for surgery.
